Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I wish they would do 4k blurays. I may still get this. Yeah, it is a bit frustrating since these are technically 4k transfers...but I get it from a business standpoint. Criterion already has to charge a lot for their releases to keep running, and even just putting out blu ray versions of everything...

Re: Food Monstrosities

I really like eating pickles but that sounds pretty freakin disgusting. I have several family members, my dad, one of my sisters, and two of her kids who drink pickle juice straight out of the jar. It's a really weird family thing. I like to put a little pickle juice in my bloody mary with a nice f...

Re: MCU Thread

F&TWS was weirdly both too short and too long. It was too short to REALLY dive into the multitude of post-blip struggles the world faced, and too long to simply give us a new Captain America and gloss over a forgettable antagonist story. They really tried to do too much I think. It felt like it...

Re: MCU Thread

You’re just be-bopping and scatting all over the place. The over-processed bit rings a little true, but less so since we were in the middle of the first batch of movies. The second half, like maybe after the second Thor, all seemed a little bit freer than what they were doing at the beginning. But ...

Re: MCU Thread

I think you've got some serious confirmation bias going on. You've got a narrative in your head and everything you're seeing is being fit to it. The three Disney+ shows so far have been very, very different from one another. I didn't say they were the same shows; I said I think they suffer from the...

Re: MCU Thread

Look at it this way: is going to matter in any way that Sam Raimi is directing the Dr. Strange sequel as opposed to Noface McWhoeverthehell who directed the first one? Probably not. It's hardly the end of the world, or a guarantee that the movie will suck...but arguably there's no point in Marvel ha...

There are plenty of more shows and movies to watch instead. You’re going to these movies, watching the shows, seeking out conversations about them and going “man doesn’t it suck that we all like this stuff, there’s nothing else to watch!” Nah. What I'm actually doing is, "hey, I like most of t...

Look no offense because it’s not like you’re the only guy to make these complaints and buried in there somewhere is probably a point, but I always am amused at how the people making the arguments always make it clear that they don’t really mean them. “The movies are all almost without fault complet...

Re: MCU Thread

I thought the writing in Loki was really weak. It was carried hard by the strength of the acting. Owen Wilson, Tom Hiddleston and Sophia Di Martino carried it. I'd say it's more the pacing than anything else. Everything we actually see and hear I liked...but, again, it's set up like we've watched 5...

Like, this is the big budget broadcast version of Charlie Kelly's Pepe Sylvia board, except not cool and insane. Not so fun fact: when it comes to the action scenes of Marvel productions, the directors don't even matter. All that horsefeathers is mapped out ahead of time, and they just tell the dire...

Loki = pretty good

Loki that's not just redundant setup for horsefeathers we'll probably see in a movie anyway = even better, and, IMO, a LOT more fun

I dunno; it's just weird. I love all things comic books, but it kinda blows that this is basically THE pop culture/movie/maybe TV landscape now. I wish they were "just" comic book movies people can watch with their kids (which sounds like an extra dumb version of, "oh, I liked Thing X...

Honestly, that kinda sounds like a reminder of how horsefeathering gross this horsefeathers can be, IMO. I'm just not forgetting that this is a comic book adaptation that I can watch with my kids. My expectations for Loki and Wandavision were easily met and exceeded, and the same goes for most of t...

who also has to explain wtf was happening for the previous 5 episodes, and the next 5 MCU movies. What Marvel/Disney is doing with all of this, both on a writing and production level, is pretty daunting. The level of difficulty is waaaay high. If this is the kind of content that largely replaces ga...
